Primary venous aneurysm is a very rare disease, especially in pediatric patients. A case of primary great saphenous vein aneurysm in a five-year-old boy is reported. He was initially suspected of suffering from inguinal hernia because the soft mass was detected at the inguinal region when the patient was in the standing position. However, ultrasonography revealed the swelling to be a great saphenous vein aneurysm. The lesion was restricted to the thigh area and was surgically excised.
